Programme in Midwifery Science

This programme consists of three semesters of full time studies. The education is conducted in Swedish only. Few people working within healthcare have such a close relationship with women and families as the midwife. It is the midwife who provides support and security during childbirth – a particularly special time. The midwife also carries out other important duties, such as promoting women's health throughout life.
